Royal Air Maroc (RAM) has received its first Boeing 737 MAX after welcoming its first 787-9 Dreamliner the previous week as it continues to expand and modernise its fleet.
The Moroccan carrier will also take delivery of three more 737 MAX 8s and three more 787-9s over the next few months as part of its strategic plan to strengthen its operations.
RAM plans to deploy its 737 MAX 8 on routes from Casablanca to Accra (Ghana), Lagos (Nigeria), London-Heathrow (England), Bologna (Italy) and Paris (Orly and CDG).
RAM chief executive officer and chairman, Abdelhamid Addou said: “These new 737 MAX airplanes expand our medium-haul portfolio, which forms the backbone of Royal Air Maroc’s fleet.
“Our choice of this airplane is in line with our strategy of continuously expanding and modernizing our fleet, and comes just a few days after the announcement of Royal Air Maroc’s invitation to join the most prestigious Oneworld Alliance.
“This in turn will further strengthen our leadership position on the continent, both for our country and for Royal Air Maroc.”
